Join me as I check in with Dr. Rob Tremblay from Boehringer Ingelheim
What we can learn:
– Why is udder health so important during the dry period?
– What are some of the different dry cow strategies available to producers?
– What is selective dry cow therapy and why might be a good fit for some producers?
– What are internal teat sealants and how can they help to reduce the risk of mastitis?
– Does it make sense to use an internal teat sealant even if you’re using a blanket approach?
– If someone is thinking about adding a teat sealant to their dry cow protocol is there any suggestions or recommendations that you would have?
